Read by Stewart Wills Few things, even in literature, can really be said to be unique -- but Moby Dick is truly unlike anything written before or since. The novel is nominally about the obsessive hunt by the crazed Captain Ahab of the book's eponymous white whale.

An engrossing suspense film with Mickey Rooney, Peter Lorre, and Jeanne Cagney. Needing money for a date, Rooney borrows $20 from the cash register, starting a chain of events that includes car theft, burglary, and possibly murder. (Yes, that is Jack Elam in the bar scene.)

Set in post-World War II New York City, the show closely followed the format of early Ellery Queen mystery novels where, before presenting the solution, a "Challenge To The Reader" was issued: the reader was challenged to guess the solution to the crime. In the series this tradition was followed by having Ellery Queen (Jim Hutton) "break the fourth wall," reviewing key clues and asking the audience if they knew the solution. The final act always used the time-honored...

Growing up on a cattle ranch in Texas, which has been in our family for five generations, our family farm provided everything we needed from fresh...

Rudolf Klein-Rogge stars in a role he later repeated in "The Testament of Dr. Mabuse" (aka "The Crimes of Dr. Mabuse) in 1933. This is actually the first part of a film that was released in two parts, something Lang has done a few times (The Indian Tomb, Siegfried). Unfortunately, I do not have part 2.

A classic Sovet movie about establiching a fictional city Aerograd (literally "the Aero City") on the Pacific Ocean shore. Very atmospheric, now with English subtitles (download http://www.archive.org/download/aerograd/Aerograd.srt file). See http://imdb.com/title/tt0026040/ for further details.

"Middle-aged farmer goes to extreme lengths to protect the dark secret associated with a deserted house on his property. Murky psychological thriller with resonant settings and an emotive Miklos Rozsa score." - noir expert Spencer Selby
